I have hypothyroidism and Charcot Marie Tooth disease. I am having severe swelling around my eyes and nose every morning. This has been going on for 8 years. Lately I get chronic ear infections and fluid in my left ear constantly. I just had my ear drained because I couldn't hear out of my left ear any more. When I wake up in the mornings I look like a monster! Look at my profile photo...
I just got the results from my bloodwork Doctor says they are fine, here they are -
T3 - 34 (22-35)
T4 - 6.1 (4.5-12.0)
T7 - 2.1 (1.4-3.8)
TSH - 1.00 (0.40-4.50)
UREA Nitrogen (BUN) - 16 (7-25)
Creatinine - 0.94 (0.50-1.05)
So if they are FINE, why does my face and ears build up with fluid at night????
